The downhill to flat course, coupled with the typically cool race day weather, can lead to many PRs and BQs. Be cautious on the early downhill miles so you have something left in your quads for the latter miles.

review of 2016 Two Rivers Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

Review

I ran this marathon in 2016 and loved it! It was my first marathon and I highly recommend it for less experienced marathon runners. It's not huge and intimidating and the scenery is really pretty. It's also a lot of downhill so probably a little easier than most. I used my GPS and it had the marathon distance pretty accurate (I think mine said it was about a half a mile longer than 26.2 but that happens sometimes). They also had water stations about every 2 miles. My only complaint was that they food was slow at the end of the race (although it was free).

Race Tips

A lot of downhill at first so it's easy to go too fast with your pace. Just a few rolling hills after that.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Find a hotel early. I stayed in the Hotel Belvedere in Hawley and it was pretty convenient.



review of 2014 Two Rivers Marathon.   

2 / 5 Stars

Review

While this is a pretty course, 2014 was 1 mile short on the Sunday race.. director said "maybe you lost sattelites?? Well it was longer than Saturdays race" - turn around cone was moved in the early morning.

Race Tips

It's a fast start as the course starts on a downhill

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

It's a small race... not many logistical issues



review of 2014 Two Rivers Marathon.   

1 / 5 Stars

Review

I ran this is 2014. It didn't finish where it was supposed to, so not a certified course. Course was also short and fluid stations were mostly out of anything for slower runners.

Race Tips


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

It's far away from anywhere. Stayed at a motel 15 miles away.
